Gale Massey: The Girl From Blind River


Bottom of the Deck

If you are Jamie Elders, you are living in a dingy trailer under the thumb of your criminal uncle. Your teenage brother has problems with anger management, and your mother is an ex-con just released from prison.

Jamie is 19 and knows life is better – somewhere. Meantime, she’s pretending to go to college, collecting from illegal video machines, and playing online poker.

It’s the poker game her mother deals for the Judge that goes wrong. Late at night Jamie is helping her uncle bury a body.

The family situation is bad. The body, yeah that’s bad. The Girl From Blind River is stellar. You’ll turn pages faster than a dealer shuffles a deck.
